Jordan Gill will defend his WBA international featherweight title against Enrique Tinoco at the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham on May 10, on Sky sports
Gill broke into the WBA’s top 15 world rankings when he outclassed and stopped Mexico’s Emmanuel Dominguez in three rounds to win the international featherweight strap and is wasting no time as he defends his title against another tough Mexican in Tinoco.
“Getting out again so soon after my win in Peterborough is great for building the momentum,” said Gill.
“I want to stay fresh in everyone’s minds and to keep on building and learning is important. To keep on winning and improving is the main aim and I can’t wait to get out again on May 10.”
“I don’t know too much about my opponent. I know he’s tough and very seasoned, he went the distance with Devin Haney who’s an unbeaten and well-ranked lightweight.”
“He’s considered one of the best up-and-coming lightweight prospects in world boxing and if he couldn’t put Tinoco away then I know I’m in for a hard night.”
Promoter Eddie Hearn says he is excited about bringing Boxing back to Nottingham, the home of former world super-middleweight champion Carl Froch.
“Jordan Gill has become a standout star and he gets straight back to defending his title”
“I’ve been looking to return to Nottingham for years and now we have the perfect chance to do it with a great line up of talent,” said Hearn.
